Khooa threatens to leave Bantu

Moorosi Tsiane

BANTU are likely to lose another defender after Tsietsi Khooa has threatened to leave should the Mafeteng side keep ignoring him by failing to fulfill its promises.

Bantu has already lost centre back Johannes Molapo, who joined Kick4Life while Motlomelo Mkhwanazi is linked to South Africa’s First Division side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM).

Khooa joined Bantu at the beginning of the 2016/17 season and has been an important member of the James Madidilane side that won back to back Premier League in his first season and the 2017/18 season.

The South African however, said he is on the verge of leaving A Matšo Matebele if the club continues reneging on its promises made to him when he renewed his contract at the end of 2017/18 season.

“When I extended my contract at the end of last season, I had some terms which were put down and we agreed with Bantu that they will do those things to continue playing for them and the agreement involved money,” Khooa said.

He said the Bantu management has not delivered on its promises while they keep ignoring him whenever he enquires about the issue.

“Last November, I approached the management to hear how far they were on delivering on their promise but I was told to wait until we finished playing in the CAF Champions League and I understood given clear answers,” he said.

Khooa, who was named Bantu’s most consistent player for the 2018/19 season, said he is ready to terminate his contract if the management continues ignoring him.

“We had an agreement and they need to fulfil it because I still want to play for the club since I have enjoyed my stay here. However, everyone knows that even when you have a child and promise something, and fail to deliver, they will give you a hard time. That is the same case with me; it’s either they keep their end of the bargain or we part ways,” Khooa said.

On his part, Bantu president Leuta Leuta conceded that they signed an agreement which they have failed to fulfill but said they are already working on the issue.

“That issue is already being attended to. The person who was appointed to deal with it has just been busy and it was just unfortunate that he was not communicating with Khooa but very soon it will be resolved.

“It was also difficult to fulfill the promise because we have to do something for him in South Africa but the committee has met and we are working on it. The player won’t be leaving us,” Leuta said.
